Assistant System Administrator (Current Employee) – Campbell, CA – March 7, 2013
Saama Technologies is geared towards agile software development. A business intelligence company, Saama is dedicated towards finding ways to analyze customers' data and turn that information into the means to earn the company more money. My typical day is a balance between long term and short term goals. I will give today as an example. I began the day about an hour earlier than usual to setup and record a Webex session with a senior VP that will allow others to replay the presentation for various meetings over the next few days. I ran a diagnostic and reimaged a recently returned laptop to hand off to someone complaining of laptop issues. I was ordered by the India team of the IT department to purchase more RAM and an additional NIC for two servers in the datacenter to enable the servers to use the network area storage system to increase the number of virtual machines we can run. I informed our admin staff about my concerns for the office move we are undergoing soon. I setup an appointment with a vendor to see about pricing and capabilities for assisting with the office move. I assisted a member of the HR team with transferring their data from an old machine to a recently issued machine. I shutdown and inspected a server, looking to see if the system can handle an additional NIC and more RAM. I added people to certain e-mail aliases and setup Webex meetings for the next week and the next day. Finally, I authorized the download of some Apple software via the App Store using the companies Apple account.
flexible hours, decent pay, fun co-workers, free snacks, supportive co-workers, very competitive healthcare
occasional night and weekend work, aging infrastructure, lack of support from the rest of the it team, little opportunity for advancement, major decisions made by offshore team
Senior Delivery Lead (Former Employee) – Campbell, CA – June 27, 2016
Not a professional company. The leadership team is very worst. Only promote to those who are working at corporate office. Leadership team needs only puppet who just listen to them and work. No feedback process.
Associate Consultant (L2) (Former Employee) – Campbell, CA – June 23, 2016
I was hired as a NCG (new college graduate) and it was a great learning experience for me to learn the ropes about Big Data. Once the training program was finished i received my job offer and started working on projects at client sites. The downside is that when there are no projects to work on and you're on bench, you don't have anything to do.
Overall it was an OK job and don't have much to complain about.
Great place to work for Data Science and Analytics

Sr. Lead Recruiter (Current Employee) – Campbell, CA – October 20, 2015
OK kind of company, not a great place to be, lot of internal politics. hard worker who does not care about politics will not survive at Saama. Initially a new employee is welcome well, but later the politics will kill you.
